Top 5 limited card in the set - absolute powerhouse. You wont understand until you've either mauled someone with it, or had them evaporate you on turn 5 with a Thatcher's Revolt. This card is powerful from the moment you drop it.

With this on the field, Thatcher Revolt gives you 3 4/4 dudes plus makes this a 5/5. That's 17 points of damage from a cheap two-card combo that's easy to assemble in draft!

This + Thatcher Revolt + Lightning Mauler (pair this with it) = Game over.

This + Thatcher Revolt makes me cry

Seriously, at the prerelease someone had a pair of these and some Thatcher revolts. Nothing is more annoying than losing 16 life turn 5.

I dunno...great in token decks, or weenie decks with lots of hand replenishing, but still seems like one of those cards that just doesn't quite make the cut. For 4 CMC, I can think of better. But it's certainly worth trying out to see if I'm dead wrong (which I probably am!).

EDIT: Okay, had one of these at prerelease, and it's official: I was dead wrong. Even a single trigger per turn is fantastic as long as you have a handful of creatures out. Playing anything that generates multiple creatures per turn makes this very, very powerful for an uncommon. Top notch limited card, and probably decent for constructed. I'll have to experiment with this some more, but it's much more promising than I originally gave it credit for.

A magnet for removal. Everyone at the prerelease had one, and everyone was terrified that someone else might play it. Makes Voice of the Provinces slightly less terrible too.

This was awesome at the pre-release. Works nicely with Cloudshift. But i'm guessing this just isn't very strong outside of a sealed format. In a token deck that can abuse the trigger it could have a strong effect. Casual tken decks most likely because I'm sure there are better 4CMC cards that can go into a token deck in standard... like Sorin. Yeah I'd probably go with Sorin. Not gonna lie though. I'm putting a couple of these into my casual B/W token deck it totally owned face at the pre-release.

This with Cathars' Crusade makes for a lot of weenie pain.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
